"For the guys - Seriously, you need to ask? You'll love every minute of it. And if you are worried that the abuse parts are too much to handle - let me assure you it is discussed with class and intelligence. SEE IT.
For the girls - There were LOTS of female hockey fans in the audience - but regardless if you like hockey or not, this is a fabulous character story that will have you rooting for Theo despite his many flaws. SEE IT.
For the occasional audience - Foul language, some uncomfortable story elements and a two act monologue may make you wary. You shouldn't be. This is great theatre that will may you laugh and cry and tell you a great story.
For the theatre junkie - This show is a fourple threat (I just made that word up). The writing, the acting, the directing and the set will rival some parts of the best theatre you've seen. SEE IT." - CBC Calgary
